    I am currently redesigning my online portfolio and I just don't think it looks quite right. It looks fine without the fake content but as soon as I put the fake content it just ruins the whole effect to me. Only the homepage works for now. I don't want to move on until I can pinpoint what is ruining it for me.

    Here is the link

    If anyone can see what i'm talking about and has any suggestions please do comment!
    Thanks

    Looks okay to me. What's wrong with it?

    It just doesn't look right to me. Doesn't meet my personal standards. Anything I can do to improve it?

    Maybe put pictures over each of your columns?

    I'm not sure what to suggest, dude. The problem with your question is that it's too vague and that it's based entirely on the idea that you'll see something you'll like but that you don't know what it is.

    I prefer fresh colours. You have used dark background therefore, the content is not impressive enough. (just my opinion). I prefer to see some creative design on your site.

    If you have a cell phone try taking a look at it on that. The text is flowing out of the divs and none of your top links seem to work for me. Im using the iphone4

    It's a nice clean design, fonts could do with some work in my opinion, and maybe something that "say's hey I'm designer" something with wow factor.

    Can you suggest any fonts?

    Sorry I should have been a bit clearer, I was mainly talking about your menu, Serif is fine but maybe just change the weight to normal, for your banner the "Live to design" looks good & suits your logo, the sub title font "Going above & beyond" seems a little big to me, but it's only my opinion. Have you tried Google fonts, there's heaps of them. Finding the right font is an art in itself, but it makes a huge difference.

    I think the design is starting out just fine. One thing you might want to consider is a really dynamically designed footer. It can add depth and sharp aesthetics to an otherwise straight forward body design. Here are some inspirations:
